no, i'm not. he took to begging. he asked, cajoled, he asked for 50 destroyers. f.d.r. dragged his feet. first he said no. then he said maybe. then by november of 1940 the first five or six of the 50 dribbled in. they were rust buckets and virtually obsolete. which roosevelt told t"new york times" and congress. he said we gave them junk and we get six or seven caribbean naval bases from the empire. at one point that summer i believe churchill wrote a letter and asked roosevelt to declare war. that is how desperate he was. and so after a few brandies in t the co vilville diaries churchi says they want to us bleed to death and pick up everything that is left for free. at one point they were thinking around the dipper table of having everyone in england melt their wedding rings because it might raise $8 million or $10 million of gold and use that to buy american goods because it was all cash and carry, to shame the americans. they didn't do that. host: how much did winston churchill expect japan to get into the war? guest: one of the things, in doing this, i had to lock at what is he
many times did he ask fdr to get into the war? clacks out one -- >> at one point, he took to begging. he asked for destroyers. fdr said no. then he said maybe. then the first five or six dribbled in. they were rustbuckets. he told congress -- more last -- look at the deal i just made. we gave them drunk. at one point that summer, churchill i asked roosevelt to declare war. he was desperate. and so after a few brandies, and you will see churchill's saying "those americans are not good americans. they want us to bleed to death and come in and pick up everything for free." at one. he talked about having everyone in england mill there wedding rings to raise $10 million worth of gold to buy american goods. to shame the americans. they did not do that. >> how much did winston churchill expect japan to get into the war? >> one of the things in doing this, i had to look at what is he interested in? what is in his head? he was interested in norway, sumatra, not japan, not the pacific. his knowledge of geography, the politics, the military situation was not there. he admits in his memoirs in o
used to sell patricia cornwell. each unto itself. it begs the question when we put an ad in "new york times" come it's not like putting an advertisement for a honda or a cadillac. it is one book. it is not random house advertising on its books. it's one book. it's a very different and very subjective business, which means that you can only fit so much when it comes to marrying books to readers, books for which publishers pay a deal for. when i was at schuster, they paid $8 million, which had been a record number for ronald reagan's memoir, called american life. you know, the math as well as i do. you need to sell 4 million books. not just write a million dollars, you need to sell 250,000. the book actually sold about 300,000 copies. so it was a spectacular failure. because of the comparison. it's a highly complex business with a very thin margin of process. when you add to that the dramatic changes in technology and the public demand, you have an industry that needs to redefine itself. nobody knows that more than the people sitting on the stage who are here to talk to you about it. yo

, begging for a patch from congress. my theory is this is their way to push us into a flat tax system; right? >> you're correct. the amt is a different way of calculating the tax, taking your income saying we're not giving you many of the itemized deductions and have a different rate. there's been consistently an exemption amount which requires congress to pass a legislation each year to extend it. the exemption is not permanent in our tax code, and right now, it expired going back to january 1st, 2012 so we don't have it right now. >> do you think they could let it go? it's close. in prior years, we had the patch earlier on. >> absolutely, and the irs planned op the patch, and the computers are program the that way. if we don't get it, it not only impacts those who have to pay the amt, but delays refunds because the irs computers have to be reprogrammed. we slotly need the patch and quickly. >> at the same time, though, as dire as it has, they could pass the patch, and say january 15th, make it retroactive and we're fine. just delays the process. >> that's right. until the irs and people kn

that is speaking, i beg to defer with her because we have been without a doctor -- my husband is on medicare. i'm paying for an individual policy but we've been without a doctor since june, she moved. our group practice told us they can't get a doctor. that the doctors are coming out at the university or wherever they are not going into general practice and internal medicine because of the medicare situation. they are going where they can make more money. so we're still without a doctor, here it is december. >> what are you doing? >> an on staff sees us if we need a flu shot or whatever. as for having a doctor who knew our routine and someone we would feel comfortable with we're waiting for them to have one on staff. >> where is rochelle, virginia? >> we go to the county that is nearest to us. it is a university of virginia practice out of charlottesville. we normally always go to those doctors and they treat mostly elderly. >> iris, if you have have a life situation or need to see a fission for, anything beyond a flu shot, what do you do right now? >> that's what i said. we have to see whoever
people, begging for money. i think you spend maybe one- third to one-half of your time asking people for money. that should not be the main objective of our job. we should be doing the job for the people instead of worrying about raising money. i do not know what the answer is. maybe limiting the terms of the campaign, i do not know what it is. you cannot limit the funding because of the first amendment. it is gone way beyond the pale. i think -- we have state representatives that are spending three-quarters of a million dollars for house in indiana. we have gone beyond where we should. >> in addition to your long service, you have been on foreign affairs. >> 30 years. >> a somewhat early association was with jesse helms. how did that alliance come together? let's start with that part of the story. >> i was always a strong anti- communists. i never liked fidel castro. i became chairman of the subcommittee on western hemisphere. i worked with some of my cuban- ileanaan friends, ke ros-lehtinen and bob menendez and we worked hard to put sanctions on castro to try to bring that regime d

economy, aren't adversely impacted because people can't do their jobs. >> so that begs the question, hall. how are other countries preparing for this really precarious situation and one in which they really have no control. >> well, martin, there's not much they can do to prepare. what will happen, if the fiscal cliff turns out to take place, is that we'll start to see the economy beginning to slide. the first thing that has happened already is that a lot of small businesses and other companies have been holding back on spending, and on hiring people. because they're worried about the tax rate increase. but starting in january 1st, we're going to start seeing things like payroll taxes going up, we're going to see other taxes starting to come into place that will be very difficult for some people. but that's only the beginning. in february, we're going to have to deal with the debt crisis. and the debt ceiling. and that's going to be an issue that will make the economy even more unstable. and by may and april, we're going to start to see things like estimated taxes increase and the governm
, because i think your point begs this question. how many single women who live alone in their 40s, 50s, 60s, protect themselves at night with a bushmaster? can i answer that question for you? none. a glock, 10 millimeter glock, can i answer that one for you? none. i only bring this up, not to point it at you, to say for all those people putting up false choices there somehow we have to choose as a country whether we allow single elderly women to protect themselves from intruders, or allow our children to be sprayed with a flurry of bullets? by the way, look what happened in oregon, look what happened in colorado, look what happened in virginia. look what happened in a religious temple. look what happened in connecticut. we can't say these are random isolated events anymore. >> it's an epidemic. >> it's an epidemic and growing epidemic. i just wonder, dan, this is the last question to open it up for everybody else, come on, let's get real, buddy, what if mitt romney had an election a year from now? and he had to be the candidate that had to defend the right of americans to buy 10 millimeter
or not her sister -- doesn't know if her sister vicky is dead or alive. she's simply begging for information. she says seeing that photo, it's like reminder of that moment all over. it kills. >> gretchen: brian was just alluding to where the six children ended up who managed to escape. jean rosen had been out for breakfast. came home to his house. here he is finding out about the tragic news and sees these six children standing on his lawn. he thought they were part of a school play, maybe it was a skit they were doing. suddenly the kids were crying ask telling him our teacher is dead. we can't go back to school. what did he do? he brought them inside his home for safety. eventually a school bus driver came in, able to help him identify the children, gave them juice and stuffed animals. called their parents. the saddest part to me about this story is that later on, a parent came to his house and said, i understand that you have some children here who survived. was my child here? and he, unfortunately h to tell her no. >> steve: there is one other story that i saw this morning in the story re
support systems, and it is not a new problem. it is frankly getting worse going forward. that begs the question of, yes, we need to reform the education system, particularly focusing on middle school, but we also have to recognize, as steve mentioned, one of the opportunities and challenges of the internet is that has made space and distance and time in effect disappear in terms of the change. you can build it anywhere. if you can build it anywhere, that means america has international companies with footprints everywhere, and microsoft and google and aol can choose where to locate. if they're not getting enough american talent, it will relocate. one last point, many of these younger people are still being trained at our universities. oftentimes, they're not so much going back home, many are just driving north to toronto, canada, where there is a much easier visa system. >> steve, people say the problem is not just that it cannot the talent in the u.s. but that it costs more. that this is about a less- expensive alternative. >> no, i don't think that is true. i think it is also the
-- we're begging the nfl players and college to offer their -- report them. there's no real education program for children. nobody believes we can train children to report the symptom. they don't understand concussion. you separate the two things and you realize that, you know, we are refusing to give children the things we think grown men deserve. and if you look at it from that perspective, the tackle football question especially when you get the youngest ages does seem out of place. that we allow that to happen. and this, this isn't a referendum on u.s.a. football on warner. the leading on this in terms of reforms. and i think that's fabulous but the reality is the big lack of control over can you force youth football programs to do the things we know is a good idea. the answer we just said is no. we can't. with the unknown and issues, we have to take a serious look. >> yeah i want to bring i
